Ghost Town Anthology is a new French-Canadian supernatural drama that takes a wonderfully explicit look at the gossip and ghosts of lonely small-town life, and you can catch a special Q&A screening of the new film with director Denis Côté this Halloween in Edison Filmhub.

Things are shaken up in the snowy village of Irénée-les-Neiges when 21-year-old Simon tragically dies and leaves behind a grieving family, and a reclusive community. Things begin to spiral out of control when supposedly ‘dead’ villagers start returning from the grave.

Ghost Town Anthology is a quirky but poignant look at small-town existence and our struggle to accept outsiders. It was a main competition film at this year’s Berlinale film festival and had its Czech premiere in the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in Prague earlier this month.

The film will be in Czech cinemas from this Thursday (31/10) and will kick off with a special screening in Prague’s Edison Filmhub where director Denis Côté will also give a Q&A. All screenings in the venue will have English subtitles.

Denis Côté is a homegrown Québécois director who studied filmmaking at the Collège Ahuntsicin in Montreal, and is known for his experimental, philosophical and documentary-like work like his award-winning debut film Radisson.
